TAKE FIVE
A great lover of jazz, Take Five is Company Director David Bintley's latest jazz creation. Set to the iconic music of the legendary Dave Brubeck, this lighthearted, laid-back, elegant ballet takes life calmly in its stride.

Giselle Act II excerpts
Façade: 'Popular Song,' 'Foxtrot' and 'Tango'

THE GRAND TOUR
All aboard for the roaring 20s! Setting out for Europe, our heroine, a doughty American spinster, can't believe her luck when she embarks on her cruise and finds herself in the company of a feast of famous faces. However, it turns out that Noël Coward, Gertrude Stein and George Bernard Shaw, to name but a few, aren't necessarily the friendliest of shipmates. Add stowaways and a rather handsome Chief Steward into the mix and things might get a little... complicated.

Choreographer of many films and hit Broadway shows, American Joe Layton's The Grand Tour is a genuinely funny take on the eccentric celebrities that populated England's stages, screens and newspapers in the 1920s, accompanied by unique orchestral renditions of Noël Coward songs.
